While HellRaisers have earned their spot at the upcoming Lima Major, the organization announced that it had parted ways with Nikita "Daxak" Kuzmin.
However, Daxak noted the departure as more of a kick on his personal Telegram channel.
HellRaisers have been seen trying to find a replacement for Daxak as of late, trialing players such as former NAVI carry player Vtune as well as free agent iLTW.

Despite the winter tour having not yet concluded, HellRaisers became the latest team to have undergone roster changes following the recent departure of its carry player Nikita "Daxak" Kuzmin. While the Eastern Europe (EEU) team had managed to qualify for the upcoming Lima Major in Peru, it appears that Daxak will not be joining them at the event following the removal.

While many were confused by the roster change, Daxak noted that his departure from his former team is more than a kick, rather than him mutually parting ways.

Daxak out of HellRaisers, team to find new carry for the upcoming Major

Following its third place in the Eastern Europe Dota Pro Circuit (EEU DPC):Winter Tour, HellRaisers have qualified for the upcoming Lima Major in Peru as the region’s third representative. However despite its qualification, the team’s chemistry had taken an impact as the organization announced the departure of star carry player Nikita "Daxak" Kuzmin.

“These decisions are never easy. But the team goes first. Today we say goodbye to Daxak 🤝🏻” HellRaisers announced the departure on its official Twitter page.

While many were confused about the controversial departure, Daxak himself said on Telegram that he will be explaining the reason behind his departure soon in a livestream. However, he also noted that he had done himself proud during his short time with the team.

“I'm not going to the Major. Funny story (maybe they were right in saying I shouldn't join HR). But anyway, I proved my point and can be proud of the work I've done. Not everything in this life goes as we want. As soon as I restore integrity in the game, then maybe I'll post and tell you in detail what was there in a livestream. I'll tell you what it was like, so that there were no reticences and everything was very clear (from my pov)” Daxak said on his Telegram channel.

As of late, the organization have been seen trialing players such as former NAVI carry player Alik "V-TUNE" Vorobey as well former Nigma Galaxy & OG carry Igor "iLTW" Filatov in the BetBoom Universe: Episode I - Comics Zone tournament. However it remains to be seen if the team will recruit one of the aforementioned names for the upcoming Major.
